"Crystal clear" Samsung Galaxy F leaked again, this time in its full glory

The supposedly metal-clad upcoming Samsung Galaxy F has been all over the place this last month, and by now most of us have reason enough to believe that an official launch is imminent. Not to be confused with the Samsung Galaxy S5 LTE-A, the Galaxy F is believed to be both a higher-spec'd version and one in a more premium shell. This last part is corroborated by the latest, official-looking render of the Galaxy F in "crystal clear", courtesy of @evleaks.

This is not the first time we see what the alleged Galaxy F looks like, and we've even seen parts of the crystal clear version before, but now you can bask in its full glory. Once again, the phone appears to be sporting a metal or at least a metallic-looking rear shell, so we might see Samsung finally respond to consumer feedback at last. 

In terms of hardware, the Galaxy F is expected to keep the S5's novel heart-rate monitor, along with its 16-megapixel ISOCELL camera. New on the list is an upgraded Snapdragon 805 processor and probably some extra RAM. The Galaxy F is also expected to make use of a 5.3-inch, Quad HD resolution (1440 x 2560 pixels) display. If we were to venture a guess, the Galaxy F, if real, is a few months away from reality.

Speaker design on back could give it much better look.

The front looks very attractive. The back looks ugly. Why 5.3"?

Isn't it the same for Apple fanboys? Like you as a perfect example.

As do you Smurf. Let's be honest here, you're one of PA's biggest trolls. You troll almost every non Samsung related article and go on and on about how great Samsung is. You're just as bad as Mxy and the nokia/MS fanboys.

So now you're a liar on top of being a troll?? Wow. And I don't have to prove anything that's already common knowledge in these forums.

Seriously dude? Just because you haven't trolled yet this week, doesn't mean you don't troll. Ask anyone in these forums if you're a Samsung gambit who trolls anything not Samsung and I guarantee they'll say yes. But hey, if you can't be honest with yourself more power to you junior.

I wonder if HTC and Samsung will release their respective "prime" products to counter the release of Iphone 6. Very interesting.

CEO: designers! let's redefine our design! let's make a galaxy F, as in F for Fashion! an elegant, seamless, beautiful, handset! designers: how about simply change our perforated design to brushed metal in the back and keep the perforated design in the front? that will surely perfect for FASHION, and our fans will surely gonna love the NEW design. CEO: hmm... that's good idea! that's really a MAJOR change! you guys are genius! galaxy F * c k T * r d s

No thanks. If history repeats itself (M8), aluminum = inferior reception.

True.. My m7 reception isnt as good as my note 2.. But this looks quite tempting though..

Seriously? You have the HTC one m7? The phone u bash to death before? Dude pretending that you have that phone just for the sake of bashing,trolling or posting some lies is just BS..lol..right Papa smurf?

Don't know if you're trying to say I have a M8 or not. M8's reception sucks. Period.

72. maccess

I have an m7 as my daily driver even until now.. I like the phone just for the speaker and the smoothness of sense UI.. Everything else like the camera, the easily dent edge, easily hot back when you browsing or playing games and the not so great reception are the downside for me.. And please give me any link that i ever bash the m7 to death kid.. And one more, did i ever mention that i dont own an m7??

http://www.anandtech.com/show/7984/discussion-on-material-choices-in-mobile There is no history of bad reception from the HTC One. Neither the M7 or M8

There is buddy. And I used to have M7. So saying that from experience.

Use the device in person. I always get three or four signal bars everywhere in Chicago where my S5 always got five. The noticeable difference is the Wifi radios that give me 50% slower speeds. S5 gave me 108mbps and M8 gave me 50. God they blow so much.

I believe this is true...I've never had the m7 or m8 but my evo 4g LTE definitely had reception issues when compared to the one x. The aluminum novelty wore off real quick for me personally...

I don't think comparing an Evo 4g LTE to a One X is really valid when it comes to reception. Yes they are the essentially the same phone constructed with different materials but they also run on different networks. The EVO was exclusive to Sprint, other carriers had the ONE X. Your reception issue may have been related to the Sprint network and not your aluminum phone. I too had the EVO 4g LTE. While it wasn't the best phone I've ever had in terms of reception, it was miles ahead of the EVO 3D, which was plastic. The M8 is another step up from the EVO 4g LTE for reception. I've had one dropped call in 3 months and data connections are much more consistent and speedier. It helps that Sprint has vastly improved their network where I live.
